Swap out the thermal paste for either of these. Arctic Silver used the be the best but that is no longer the case.

Newegg.com - ARCTIC MX2 Thermal Paste -4gram

Newegg.com - Tuniq TX-2 Cooling Thermal Compound

Nothing wrong with AS5. Really no difference between all the high end paste.

Drop the PSU to a TX650m and get a better GPU.

It's cheaper for the same amount of TX-2.

And if you swapped the 7850 with a GTX 660 then SLI'd 2 later you would have more performance for slightly more money. In most cases the 660 is even better than the 7870.

Do you plan to OC?
